Woodbury Realtors Second Step To Selling Your Home, Inspect The Home.

Dale will come over and view your home.  This is important. Many people just want Woodbury Realtors to be able to tell them what their home is worth over the phone.  The problem is size and condition matter.  Dale has seen homes that have certain square feet size on the Washington County Tax Website and then when he showed up it was bigger or smaller.

Condition on the other hand is always different.  Some people live in a home as if it was a museum.  Others could be on the show hoards and most are in between.

Dale will walk through the home with you and see what shape the home is in.  Always make sure to check your attic space.  It is one of the most forgotten areas of the home and can have some interesting problems.

Woodbury Realtors Third Step to Selling Your Home, Your Condition.

Dale will sit down with you and go through what your home is worth.  Dale will look at what has gone pending in the last 30 days within 1 mile of your home.  Why pending you may ask?  Sold homes could have gotten under contract 60 to 120 prior.  Homes in Minnesota sell for different prices depending on what season it is and how competitive the area is.

Woodbury Realtors Fourth Step to Selling Your Home, How to Price Your Home.

There is really two strategies when it comes to selling home based on price.  You can be aggressive or passive.  Aggressive is pricing your home below the market and letting the offers drive up the price.

Passive is putting the home at the market range or above.  This is called chasing the market since buyers are very interested in newly listed homes and once so many days market goes by your find buyers that will take your home if it is a deal and that usually comes with a lower offer.

Dale will go through both of these strategies and show you homes that are currently pending that used these strategies like below.

Aggressive Pricing Model:

You can see this home was listed on 8/3.  Had so many showings that they had to mark it Temporarily Not Available For Show to stop the showings while they accepted the highest offer.  Then Pending status after inspection and Closed 9/22.

Passive Pricing Model:

With the Passive Pricing you can see this Home was listed 4/20 for $375,000 then price reduction 60 days later.  Then Price reduction 34 days later.  Then offer accepted on 8/10 and closed on 9/12.  There is a lot to take in about this process.  Number of times you want to clean up the home for showings.  How many mortgage payments you will be making while waiting for an offer.

Regardless of which way you want to sell your house we will help you through the process.

Woodbury Realtors Fifth Step in Selling Your MN Home Signing a Listing Agreement:

After discussing price and agreeing on a strategy, we sign the listing agreements.  Listing agreements can be anytime frame between 6 months and a year.  Real Estate Commissions in Minnesota vary between 5% to 7% of the total home sales price.  The buyers agent that brings buyers through will get anywhere from 2.5 to 3.0% and the listing agent will get anywhere from 2.5 to 4% and this is paid out of closing.  Meaning, your Woodbury Realtors help you accept an offer that has this total commission in it and then when you go to closing it is paid out of the buyers money.
